Pilates was developed almost 100 years ago by Joseph Pilates. These exercises emphasized the balanced development of the body through core strength, flexibility and awareness in order to support efficient and graceful movement.
In Pilates, core strength is the foundation of all movement. Pilates mat workouts focus on controlled movements using the body's core muscles.
These workouts can also help reduce back pain, compression on the joints and prevent sports injuries. Exercises are low impact and are modified according to personal flexibility and strength limitations.
Pilates classes include:
A mat workout designed to strengthen the core of the body by developing pelvic stability & abdominal control. It is an excellent way to increase muscular endurance, improve flexibility, & encompass the spirit, mind & body into one effective workout.
